A Look Back at the 10th Heidelberg Laureate Forum

The 10th Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) has come to a close. This year’s HLF took place from September 24 to 29 and brought together more than 30 laureates of the most prestigious prizes in mathematics and computer science as well as 200 of those disciplines’ brightest young researchers of the next generation. The week featured a host of fascinating talks, panels and interactive formats where some of the timeliest issues relating to mathematics and computer science were discussed, including generative AI, mathematics education as well as interdisciplinary research synergies. The HLF provided the space and time for leading researchers in their fields to interact, share ideas, network and form lasting connections that promise to develop into fruitful collaborations.

In honor of its tenth anniversary, the HLF featured a number of special additions: 20 alumni from past HLFs were invited back to share their experience and expertise; new formats such as Lightning Talks and Spark Sessions provided participants with more dynamic ways to engage with contemporary scientific issues; and, HLF alumna Jie Li presented participants with a very special "10th HLF" birthday cake in celebration of the occasion!
